Welcome to the world of Huisman

Opportunities for the future
Our current market climate asks for a reassessment of strategy, actions and organisation design. We recognise this as no other. We therefore seize this ‘opportunity’ and have started a while ago to optimise our operations to increase our strength and be ready for the future. Recently we have secured several large orders in various markets, assuring a balanced order portfolio for a longer period. This provides us with a solid basis to work on a strong organisation and further strengthen our position in the market.
The oil & gas market
Times are challenging in the oil & gas industry. The first signs of change became visible through a drop in the oil price, mid-April 2014. Over the last year and a half, we have seen that various companies had to down size as a result. In May 2016, also Huisman could no longer avoid a reduction in The Netherlands. This reorganisation has been completed in good consultation with the Works Council and Unions, before the summer of 2016. Today, 80% of the employees who had to leave Huisman is working elsewhere, supported by intensive outplacement provided by Huisman.
Innovation and talent management
For some years now we have been diverting our activities to various markets, outside the oil & gas industry. This is paying off and has recently resulted in prestigious orders for the renewables and leisure markets, in addition to oil & gas related contracts. The focus on innovation projects coming from our diversification is divers. Innovation in wind energy and geothermal energy are good examples of how Huisman wants to substantially contribute to the energy transition.
Besides our spearhead innovation we are focusing on talent management, within the entire organisation. The new design of our engineering organisation, personal development programmes and knowledge management are instruments we use to unlock potential.
Building our future
Supported by a balanced order portfolio we look forward to the future with confidence. We see the challenging oil & gas market as a stimulus for further development. Innovation, safety, quality, efficiency and ownership are and will always be the themes for us to focus on, to strengthen our position. In short, Huisman has a filled order portfolio, is strengthening the organisation and is building on talent. Can we count you in?
